SkillSelect which was launched by Department of Immigration and Citizenship, Australia is an online service to filter the migration of skilled labours to the country. The service which came to effect from July 1st, 2012 allows interested professionals to record their details and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for working and staying in Australia. . They will be asked to apply for a visa if only their application gets shortlisted.
How SkillSeect Works
- Migration requirement will be shortlisted as per the economic needs of the country
- The service will have a clear view on who can apply, when can apply and how many can apply for the skilled migration. This will also reduce the visa processing time
- Regional or local skill requirements will be addressed individually
- Interested migrants can also give a hint on their staying period.
Once a business person or skilled worker shares the information required, he/she will be informed about the status. The selected migrants will be asked to apply for the visa through EOI, if selected.
Interested workers can then be identified and nominated for skilled visas by Australian companies or state and territory government agencies, or they may be invited by the Australian Government themselves to lodge a visa application.
The Expression of Interest (EOI) requires basic information about the interested migrant. The information requested may change as per the desired visa.
Required information for EOI are:
- Personal information
- Interested occupation
- Employment experience details
- Educational details
- English knowledge
- Full details and assessment of your work skills
- Level of investment and business experience
SkillSelect has made visa application easy for both employees and employers. This has paved the way for skilled migrants with required skills to move to Australia easily and quickly. Visa application processing time also has been reduced due to the limited number of applications.
